I Love You to the Stars and Back!

Hello everyone,

Coralynn here and I'm very excited to be back guest designing today.  I have a "just because" card but really can be anything you want by added another sentiment inside the card such as Happy Birthday or You did it.

I started with the Lawn Fawn Out of this World stamp set with is simply adorable and I love how they have all the planets.

I coloured in the planets, rocket and astronaut with copics and then cut them out with their dies. I then worked on the galaxy background.


I took distress inks and blended them on a piece of watercolour paper.  I used Black Soot, Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet and Squeezed Lemonade.  Once I had all the colours blended the way I thought would look good, because at this point it's just a hot mess.  I then sprayed some water drops and took paper towel to remove the water and leave the spots.  I then took some acrylic paint I had in my stash and added the splatter.


I used the "I love you to the STARS and back" sentiment and stamped that on a piece of black card stock with Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder and added foam tape to the back.


I had created a couple of moons a while back and I had this one left so I thought I'd use it on my card.  I added it to the galaxy panel with foam tape and then added the other planets with liquid adhesive. I added the astronaut to the rocket and and popped them up on foam tape as well. And that is my card.  I hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to head over to the BRI shop for the new Lawn Fawn Summer Release which is now available and lots of other goodies.

Baby Tags featuring the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool!

Happy Monday! This is Kim Hamilton and I am so very excited to be sharing my first post with you for Butterfly Reflections Ink! This is making my first day back to work after a two-week break a happy one! I am sharing baby gift tags today, one of my friends is expecting and not sure what she is having so I made one of each!

I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool for the first time and loved it! I cut my own Tim Holtz watercolor paper to the size of tag I wanted (2 3/4 x 4 1/4) and cut the edges with my trimmer.  I stamped my sentiments that are by Lawn Fawn Hello Baby with VersaMark ink and used white embossing powder. For the girl tag I used a mix of Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks and for the boy tag I used Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron Distress Inks.  I sprayed both tags with some water and dabbed it off. I then stamped my images by My Favorite Things Snuggle Bunnies for the girl and Magical Dragons for the boy.  I colored m…

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway

Hey, hey BRI friends!  We're hopping today to celebrate the 4th Birthday of Altenew, one of our favorite stamping companies!  You should have arrived here from the Altenew blog, and we're glad you're here to share the excitement! There are prizes and inspiration and it's going to be FUN!

With you today, is Norine from The Velvet Lemon creating for Butterfly Reflections Ink and I have some projects to share today, that I made using some recently released Altenew products.  
First up, are these two cards created with the Mega Succulent stamp set.  

I stamped the image onto water color paper using the MISTI, then turned on the music and sat and colored.

  I used Faber Castell watercolor pencils so I could more easily control where the color would sit and then painted with a water brush.  I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of vellum, heat embossed with clear embossing powder to ensure that the ink wouldn't smudge, then tore the vellum and wrapped it around the card …

Painting backwards....

Hello, hello!  Norine here from The Velvet Lemon blog.  It's been a week for introductions hasn't it, but let me just say how delighted I am to have been invited to join such a talented group of paper crafters, and to contribute here at Butterfly Reflections Ink!  
Today I'm sharing with you, some cards I made by working backwards. 
What do I mean, you wonder?  Well, it's a technique I sometimes enjoy doing, where you "smoosh" your water based ink pads on a craft mat, mist the colors with water and then drag your water color paper through it to create a pretty mess of color.    
For today's cards, I wanted a blend of blues and greens (always a crowd pleaser) and yellows/pinks.  You will always be happier with the results when you keep the green/blues from overlapping with the yellow/pinks, because that just produces an unappealing mud color.  

I used a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Inks for this project, but any water based inks will work the same.  It&#…
